I want to say my pastime interests are quite a few and include swimming, reading, and playing. (American English). Is it correct to say:
My pastime interests are including swimming, reading, and playing a guitar.
One can say, "including but not limited to", but it doesn't sound good unless it is in some legal document.
I don't think comma is needed before including as I am not introducing a dependent clause. Is that right? It was discussed on ELU.
Also, please suggest if there is a better way of saying this sentence without using "including."
